If you have a Cracker Barrel around you then you will probably understand when I say that a hash brown casserole makes breakfast the best meal of the day. Plus I just love when I can combine everything in one bowl – mix it – and pour it into a baking dish. Whether I bake it then or refrigerate it overnight, throwing a delicious dish together in just a few minutes is my idea of a simply perfect breakfast.
With diced potatoes, shredded apple, cream of chicken and mushroom soup, sour cream, cheddar cheese, maple sausage, and onions, who would not like this casserole?
Make it with our Crème Brûlée-Apple French Toast Bake and Ginger Apple Syrup for a morning of pure culinary delights. It’s the perfect meal for brunch or Christmas morning.
To make, preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter a baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Mix well.
Turn into a baking dish.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
Return to oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.
